This Week in Milford

Is that how you carry a golf bag?

Now we get a rehashing of the events of 3 weeks ago (at least) from our friend Corinna about the ballgame/picnic yadda yadda yadda. We really need to hear that again today only because True didnt know about it, but thats a dumb ass reason to move to a city! For free food. Yep. Otherwise the town blows, but that free food once in a lifetime sure sold me. Sheesh.

True’s outfit is interesting- a black t-shirt under a Wake Forest shirt with the sleeves cut off. Why not just wear one or the other? Its still August for chrissakes. Thats the best he can do for that big pro contract huh? And the Rays hat showing off his pro team.

What the hell are they doing with golf bags sitting around talking? If thats only an equipment bag, how much shit do you need to play catch? So many odd things in 1 strip.

Then the best part- Panel 3- True says his college (on that shirt) HAD to fly him in? To Milford? For what? To work out?? With who? Some chick going to remedial school? Or an official baseball catcher assigned to him by WF? And most of all, WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH WHAT CORINNA SAID IN P2??

So many dots to connect here and I’m just dying to know what Rays official looked at the plane schedule out in Tampa and came up with Milford as True’s destination. Chicago? Nope. Nashville? Nada. Hey how about even Atlanta? Oh no. No way do they have anyone hanging around with a catchers mitt that looks like a hat. Milford it is.

Finally – is True pointing at his shirt when he refers to WF? Again? Didnt he point at his hat talking about Tampa?

2 morons. 1 non-existent storyline. Tune in tomorrow when his official catcher shows up on the 19th hole.


  1. Excellent commentary, as usual. I was wondering the same thing… why does this dipshit always got to point to whatever logo he wearing? And really, I’m out of fucks to give about what CK does. Dead horse beaten already. Wake me when this shit concludes.

  2. If anything of interest happens this summer – Hey! It could! – it will be when Hiawatha returns to recover his glove.

  3. What a stupid fucker. Which one am I talking about? Gil of course.

  4. Rob, My Man, you is in rare form tonight, My Man. As Frank mentioned, excellent commentary.

    And as you said, what’s with the golf bags? Okay Miss Sourpuss needs a bag to tote her catcher’s equipment but all True needs is a few baseballs and a glove. Did Ada Quonsett hide in his bag from Tampa to Milford?

    And the non-sequitur in P3 typifies the New Madrid-altering of the Mississippi that’s running the river all over the country. A tributary should be reaching Gil’s backyard anyday now.
    Life on the Mississippi, indeed.

  5. For a second there I read the “g”s in “ragtag” as “s”s and thought “this rastas baseball team” would’ve made the spring arc much more interesting.

    Ah well, time for coffee and to see whether I can follow up this excellent post. Kudos, Rob.

  6. I read “rastas” too, until just now when teenchy pointed out it’s “ragtag.” tdrew has now mentioned “the non sequitur” in panel 3, so I’ll add that I was going to propose a new category to go with MIlford Pantheon of Hair, and the Pantheon of Mysterious Objects, namely Pantheon of Strips Containing More Than One Non-Sequitur. We have had a record number over the past few days. If you count visual puzzles, such as the inexplicable appearance of golf bags, there are even more.

    The story reminds me of a graduation speech I was forced to sit through a few years ago. The speaker touched on violence, the growth of the internet, our football team, the necessity of public service, the role of parents, and nearly everything else but the flat tax and the side valve engine. I thought “this is really going to be something when he ties this all together at the end,” but he never did, he just… stopped. I predict the present test of our loyalty to Mudlarkery will do the same.

  7. 1. Uh… Multiple colleges “flew you in” because you were a top-10 nationally rated high school QB, remember? I mean FFS, Rubin spent three plus weeks showing us your official visit to College Station, and iirc you had off-panel visits to USC and Ohio State, right? And as others have said, what the fuck does that have to do with what Patty is talking about?


    2. Wow, if only the City of Milford had an indoor practice facility so Tru could wear whatever he wanted without getting heatstroke…

    3. So Tru has pretty much forgotten his high school love killed in a car crash ever existed, hasn’t he? You’d think he’d put flowers on her grave or visit her parents or check the condition of her memorial “free book mailbox” or at least mention her name?

    4. I understand Peppermint Patty having to carry a big bag for her gear, but what the hell is Tru carrying? I guess since Patty is a poor and thinks free food is the greatest thing ever, Tru got one of those party subs from Subway with chips, cookies and grape soda…

  8. Tru sends Boo dead flowers through the mail
